The December Garden

 

The cooler weather is great for plants. The plants are healthier and pest free. This year we have expanded the garden, and in an effort to bring you new taste treats, we have decided to concentrate on heirlooms. We’ve planted many old, rare varieties, including 18 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, with names like black sea man, Beams yellow pear, lemon drop, cream sausage, and Austin’s red pear. We’ve also planted heirloom lettuce, onions, kale, beets, swiss chard, beans, and bok choy with names like Susan’s red bib, Grandpa Admires lettuce
.

Harvesting begins very soon, so stop by and try something old, that is new again.
